This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

*«* In the following remark$ the word Houte is to be under- 
tfood to mean the Mouse of Commone, unlets it is obvious that it 
refers to the House of Lords or to either House, 

ADJOURNMENT.p-An adjoarnment compeU the immediate rising o 
the House, who meet again at the time appointed for the next sitting, or 
Hdjnams the business on which the House is then engaged antil a future 
day. The adjoarnment of the House is effected either by virtue of a 
Standing Order, or by tlie order of the Hoose. See Counts Out, Sittings of 
Parliaoient, and Sittings of the House. 

BUSINESS. — A Mvnibcr may rihe to muve the udjourninent of the House 
lor the purpose of discussing a matter of urgent public impurtaace. Tbi.s 
motion may only be made after the question* to Mioisters ut the afternoon 
MttiD? have been disposed of, und before the lummenrenient of Puhlic 
Business has been entered upon. The terms of the motion nm!.t be 
ciiven to the Speaker in writing. If forty Members do not rl)»e in support 
of it, the motion fails, unless, not lesd than ten having so riMen, und a 
duision being claimed, the majority are in favour of tlie motion. Iftlie 
motion is made, it must stand over until tlie evening sitting of tlie 
vtrae day. 

I r the Speaker, or the Chairman of a Committee of the whole House, 
>ha)l be of opinion that a Motion for the Adjournment of a Debate, or 
»f the House, during any Debate, or a Motion that the Chairman do 
report Progress, or do leave the Chair, is an abuse of the Rules of the 
House, he may forthwith put the Question thereupon from the Chair 
or he may decline to propose the Question to the House. 

AMENDMENT.— See Business, Debate, &c. 

APPROPRIATION BILL.— When all the grants necessary fur the 
service of the year have been voted, the expenditure of each grant upon 
the service for which the grant is made, is secured by the Appropriation 
.4ct, whicn closes the financial procedure of the year. See also Supply and 
Way» and Means. 


BALLOT FOR NOTICES OF MOTION.— To obtain priority for a 
notice of motion on a day set apart for the consideration of motions before 
the Orders of the Day (see p. 128), Members avail themselves of the 
b;iIIot held for that purpose on the Table of the House before questions 
are asked of the Ministers. The Member seeking such priority enters bis 
name upon a paper which is placed in the Speaker's hands, who, when the 
number attached to the Member's name has been drawn out and announced 
to the House by a Clerk at the Table, calls upon the Member to state to the 
House the terms of his motion and the day when it is to be considered. 

As it is essential, in the case of an unofficial Member's bill, that it 
should be set down for second reading on the earliest Friday in the 
session. Members on the first day of the session ballot to obtain priority for 
the motions for leave to bring in their bills, as the Members who obtain 
the earliest place among those notices of motion are able to choose the 
most advantageous Fridays for the second reading of their bills. 

BILLS (FUBLIQ.— A bill is the draft of a statute. There are three 
modes of iBtrodncing bills to the Honee. (1^ A motion for leave to intro- 
duce a bill. (This is necessary for important Government bills.) CJ 
Intruduclion ander the so-called ten minutes rule. (3) Presentation of » 
bill without previous order for leave to introduce. A bill originated in 
the Lords may be laid on the table by a peer without the previoas per- 
mission of the House. 

Permission having been granted to bring in the bill, three or fonr 
Members are appointed to prepare the bill. It is then brnaght in and read 
a first time without debate, and a day appointed for the second reading, 
previoasly to which it is printed and a copy famished to every Member. 

The bill, aAer the second reading, is referred to a Committee of the 
whole House, (Mr to a Standing or a Select Committee (see Committees), 
whereby its details are considered. The Speaker leaves the Chair for tlie 
Committee without question pat, when the bill is considered clause br 
clause, and sometimes the bill is largely remodelltd. Sums to be charged 
on the public revenue, penalties, &c., are printed in italics; the words in 
italics, technically known as blanks, are agreed to without a question 
being put, anless a member should propose to alter them. The next pro- 
ceeding is the report of the bill to the House by the Chairman of the 
Committee, which he does by stating to the Speaker " that the Committee 
had gone through the bill," and either "made amendments thereunto" ' 
or " had directed him to report the same withoot amendment." Tlie 
report of a bill is a for^ial proceeding. If no amendments have been made < 
the bill is ordered to be read athird time ; but if the Committee have altered I 
it, the bill, as amended, is ordered to be taken into eonsidomtion on a 
fttture day, when the House proceeds to consider the bill without questions I 
pnt. I 


On the third reading thejadgment of the House is expressed upon 
the entire bill as it finally stands, and only verbal amendments can be 
made at this stage, though it is otherwise in the House of Lords. The 
question that the " bill do pass," according to present usage, is not put to 
the House. 

Daring the progress of a bill the House may divide on the following 
qnextions : 1st, on the motion for leave to bring in the bill; 2nd, on th*; 
first reading ;8rd, on the second reading ;4(b, that the bill be re-committed; 
ftlb, that it be read a third time. These are exclusive of divisions on an 
instrnclion to the Committee, or on amendments, or clauses added to or 
expunged from the measure in or out of the Committee. Alterations cannot 
be made in a bill until after its committal. Immediately alter the 
passing of a bill, the Clerk of the House takes the bill to the bar of their 
Lordships' House, desiring their concurrence, where it passes through the 
sainef orma as in the Commons. Pursuant to Standing Order a Commons 
bill which has remained 12 days on the table of tlie House of Lords cannot 
be proceeded with, save upon 8 days' notice. If abill which has passed the 
other House be rejected, no message thereon is sent to either House. When 
the Lords agree with the Commons in the principle oft he measure, but difl'er 
on niAtters of detail, they return the bill with amendments to which the 
Commons agree, with or without amendments, or disagree ; and on the 
concurrence between the two Houses over these amendments tne fate of the 
bill depends. Procedure by conferences between the Houses is not now 
adopted. The same proceedings are adopted mutatis mutandis when the 
bill originates in the Upper House. A bill for a general pardon or act of 
grace originates with the Crown, and is read once only in each Housf. 

The bill having thus passed both Houses.remainswith the Lords, except 
n the case of a bill of supply, which is sent back to the Cummons, to 
bf by them presented at the bar of the Lords to the Sovereign or the 
rowl Commissioners. The assent of the Crown is the final proceeding 
which converts abill into an Act of Parliament, which is printed by the 
King's printer on vellum, and preserved in the House of Lords. See 
Royal Assent, and Conference. See Origin of Bills ; also Rejection of a 

BILLS (PRIVATE).— Theseare chiefly introduced to enable private indi- 
'idoals, associated together, to undertake railways or other works of public 
utility at their own risk, and, in a degree, for their own benefit; but 
there are other private bills, as those of naturalization, change of name, 
divorce, or for perfecting titles to estates, «rc. The parliamentary fees paid 
by the promoters of a private bill are fix^d by the Standing Orders of both 




BILLS (PROVISIONAL ORDER).— These bills are carried through 
Parliament according to the procedure assigned to Private Bills. The ob- 
ject of a Provisional Order Bill is to give statutoiy force to Orders 
granted (under powers conferred by Statute) by Government Departments, 
such as the Home Office, the Board of Trade, Ac, which make provision 
for undertakings of public and general utility, such as the improvement 
of working men's dwellings, the construction of piers and harbours, gas. 
waterworks, and tramways. These bills, which thus effect the purposes of 
a private bill, are obtainable with more rapidity, and at a less cost. 

BUSINESS.— On Tuesdays anl Wednesdays, and on Mondays and 
Thursdays for Government bills. Motions for leave to bring in bills 
and for the nomination of Select Committees may be set down for 
consideration at the commencement of Public Business. If such 
Motions be opposed, Mr. Speaker, after permitting, if he thinks fit, a 
brief explanatory statement from the Member who moves and the 
Member who opposes any such Motion respectively, may without 
farther Debate put the Question thereon, or the Question That the 
Debate be adjourned. 

BLACK ROD (Gentleman Usher of the).- See Serjeant-at-Arms. 

BUDGET (THE).— The Chancellor of the Exchequer, or occa- 
sionally the First Lord of the Treasury, makes a general statement 
every year to the Hoose of Commons, usually in Committee of Ways and 
Means, which has for a longtime past been called '*/Ae Budgets This 
statement is based uu a review of the income and expenditure of the 
last year, and estimates of those of the ensaing year* with remarks opun 
the financial prospects of the country, and an exposition of the proposed 
repeal, modifications, or imposition of taxes to be accomplished by the 
finance bills of the session. See Ways and Means. 


On each sitting of the Hoase, after the private business, and quest torn 
have been asked of the Ministers, the time for the conimeacement ot 
public bui^iness has arrived. The Speaker accordingly calls on the Clerk 
to read the Orders of the Day, or calls on the member whose motion standi 
first on the list of notices, or who is otherwise entitled to precedence. 

Bj Standing Order Members may take the oath required by law (or m<ike 
the solemn affirmation or declaration permitted instead of the oath), 
either before the commencement of public budnessior after it has been 


dispoiied of. Doriiig ewch teasion the d;«yH ullotled to Government 
business are Monday and Thnraday ; after Easter it has precedence on 
Topsday evenings, and after 'Whitsuntide at all sittings. 

Motions proposed by anofficial MtrmtHirM « lion Id he seconded (except 
roo(i<<ns conseqaent npon an order or the d^y or when the House is in 
Committee), else it Mia to the ground. AccordintiT to the practice outside 
Parliament, when an amendment has been moved, it Is usual to give 
precedence to the amendment over the motion on which it is moved i but 
in Parliament the practice is that the Speaker or Chairman should read to 
the House the original motion, nest that he should read the amendment, 
iind then say,** the question I have to put Is, that the words proposed to 
be left out (by the amendment) stand part of the question." Should the 
'(noes'* prevail, the amendment then becomes h substantive motion, upon 
vhicb other amendments may be moved, and considered in lilie manner as 
the first. It is sometimes erroneously supposed that a Member who is 
adverse both to the original question and to the proposed amendment 
would express an opinion favourable to the question by voting ** that the 
words proposed to be leit oat stand part of the question." By such a 
course, however, he merely declares his opinion to be adverse to the 
amrndment. If, however, be t>e equally opposed to the motion and to the 
anif ndment, he may vote with the noes on both. 

In Parliament it is contrary to order for those engaged in delwte to mention 
any Member by name (excepting the Chairman of Committees). It Is alio 
out of order to speak in direct terms of any proceedings of the other Houte, 
anleu they have been recorded in the votes or orders of the other House. It 
■I also irregular to refer to the opinions of the Sovereign} speeches from the 
throne and royal messages being treated as tbe sentiments of the ministry 
which the Sovereign utters or communicates on their responsibility. 

Members speaking in the House of Commons mast address themselves to 
tbe Speaker; they may do so from any part of the House, bat their speeches 
must not be read. No member may speak more than once npon a question, 
rxcept by way of reply or explanation, or in Committee of the whole 
House. It is out of order for any Member to cross the House between tbe 
Speaker and the Member speaking. (See Conduct of Members, Naming a 
Member, Motions, and Resolution.) 

In the House of Lords the rules of order differ in some particular from 
those olnerved in the Commons. In debate those who speak address the w hole 
House, and not the ciiairman. Motions need not here, as in the Commons, 
be seconded. The Peer who sits on the woolsack or In the chair of committees 
has no duties to perform during the deliberations of the House, excepting to 
**put the question." He is not the fudge or guardian of order. If several 
Peers rise together, the House decides who shall first be heard. The spealr 
H 2 


or deputj speaker of the Lords Is not disqualified ex t^io from taking a part 
in debate. Until the year 1868 the process of voting in the House of Lords 
differed from that in the House of Commons, inasmuch as absent Peers were 
allowed to vote by proxy. In that year, howerer, a new Standing Order was 
agreed to, by which it was ordered *< that the practice of calling for proxies be 

CABINET.— The government of a state or (community is anderstood to 
signify the exercise uf supreme aatltority, and includes (he executive, the 
le^iNlative, and the judicial powers: but in popnlar acceptation it means 
only the first of these, the higher and more immediate functions of «hirh 
are exercised by the Cabinet, a select body in whom, for the time being, 
the whole of the royal authority is vested. Its members all belong to the 
Privy Council, but do not inclnde a tithe of that body. The Cabinet if 
composed of the more eminent portion of the Administration; it con- 
stitutes occasionally, according to recent pracice, almut one-fourth of the 
ministry and the officers of state nominated by the Prime Minister, the 
persons included in the Cabinet being rarely lesr than ten or more than 
seventeen or eighteen. Mr. Iltt's first Cabinet (1783) consisted of but seven 
personr. and he himself was the only memlier of the House of Cummons 
among those seven. TheCabinet being more immediately retponsible fur llie 
conduct of public affairs, their deliberations are Hlways considered confi- 
dential, and kept secret even from their colleagues who are leas exalted in 
office. The distinguished individual who fills the situation of First Lord oi 
the Treasury is generally (though there wa.<« an exception made in 1885} 
the chief of the Ministry, and therefore of the Cabinet: he is usually 
styled, the "Premier," or "Prime Minister," but more propeily de- 
signated as "the head of his Majesty's governmeut.*' It is at his im- 
mediate recommendation that his colleagues are appointed, and, with 
hardly an exception, he dispenses the patronage of the Cnmo. Eveiy 
Cabinet includes the following high officers-— The First Lord of the 
Treasury , the Lord Chancellor, the Lord President of the Council, the Lord 
Privy Seal, the Chancellor of the Exchequer.and the Secretaries of State. 
Sffveral other ministerial functionaries, however, may have s«Ats in the 
Cahintti never less than three, and rarely so many as seven or right of this 
latter clh»s, are called to that station. Their offices are as follow :— Com. 
missioner of Worlcs and Buildings, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, 
First Lord of the Admiralty, President of the Board of Trade, Judge 
Advocate-General, Postmaster- Oeneral, Chief Secretary for Ireland, Presi- 
dent of the Local Government Board, Chief Justice of England. The selec- 
tion usually falls upon those amongst the latter mentioned functionaries, 
whose rank, talents, reputation, and political weight render tkem 


tb« most Qfseftil auiliaries, or whose services, i»hile in opposition, rnhj 
hare created tlie strongest ciaims to ttie honours of the Cabinet. It 
has oocasionalljr happened that a statesman, beiuR a Privy Coancillor, 
possessing high character and inflaence, accepts a seat in the Cabinet with- 
ont nudertaking the labours and responsibility of any particular office. 
Although this select council has now been regarded during several genera- 
tions as an essential part of our polity, yet it still continues to be unknown 
tothe law. The names of the noblemen and gentlemen who compose it are 
never offlctally announced to the public. No record is kept of its resolutions 
or meetings, nor has its existence ever been recognised by any act of par- 
liament. See Crown, and Executive. 

oBcer of the House of Ctnnmons— always a Member— is elected by the 
House, in Committee of Supply , on t he assembling of every new Parliament. 
It is his duty to preside whenever the House is in Committee whether 
on bills or any other Committee of the whole House ; he sits, not in the 
Speaker's chair, but at the table in the seat of the Cierk of the Honse. The 
oaly occasion when he votes, in committee, is in giving the casting vote, 
ifon a division the numbers happen to be equal. With the assistance oi 
ihr Speaker's Counsel he examines Private Bills to ascertain that they 
comply with the law of Parliament. If the unavoidable absence of the 
Speaker is announced to the House by the Clerk, the Chairman of Ways 
and Means acts as Deputy-Speaker until the close of the bitting; or 
he takes the chair on the request of the Speaker. If the unavoidable 
kbsence of ihe Chairman is anntinnced, a Deputy-Chairman, who is 
entitled to exercise all the powers of Chairman, including those as 
Deputy- Speaker, is also appointed at the commencement of every new 
Parliunent. The Speaker nominates five members to act, when requested 
to do so by Ihe Cliairman of Ways and Means, as temporal y Chairman ot 
Committees. See Speaker, his duties, &c. 


Commons, the Chairman of Committees of the whole House is usually 
the Chairman of Ways and Means ; in the Lords be is elected by the 
House every Session, and usually holds in addition the office of Deputj- 

CHILTERN HUNDREDS, &c.— A Member cannot relinquish his seat. 
A Member, therefore, who wishes to retire, accepts office under the Crown , 
as BO member can accept an office receiving emolument from the Crown 
vithoBt thereby vacating his seat. A Member, accordingly, who wish'- 


to resign his seat in the Houae appties to the Treasury, and he receives, 
unless causes exist for refasing the applicMtion, one of the nflkes of the 
Stewardship of his Majesty's three Chiltern Hundreds— Stolie, Des- 
borongh, and Booenham : or the Stewardship of the Manor of Northstead; 
sinecures which are retained until the office is wanted for another holder. 
The holders of old offices, such as the Secretaries of State ortheChaocfllor 
of Exchequer, t.e. offices created before the 26th October, 170S, under the 
Act of Anne (which imposed the parliamentary disability upon holders of 
Crown offices), can sit in the House ot Cooimous, after re-election on 
acceptance of office. The holders of certain departmental offices, either 
because they are not held directly from the Crown, or by statutory pro- 
vision, can retain their seats in the House without re-election. Ofthc^e 
olBces may be mentionrd an ambassador, or foreign minister, the Under- 
Secretaries of Slate, or the Secretary to the Admiralty. By the Reform AcU 
of I8H7 and 1868 it was enacted that Members who hold the principal 
offices of state should not, on the acceptance of other offlce.", thereby vacate 
their .seats. 

CLERK OP THE PARLIAMENTS. -He, as Clerk of the House of 
Lords, i.s responsible for the due record and publication of the proceedings 
and journals of the House. In this duty he is assisted by the Clerk Ab-his- 
taut and the Reading Clerk, who sit with him at the table of the House. 
He is also resipounible for the due conduct of the business of thn, 
and of the Clerks attached thereto. He signifies the royal assent to 
(he billH agreed upon by both Hon:<es of Parliament. He endorses the 
bills communicated between the two Houses, and signs orders for the 
attendance of witnes-'es, and other orders of the House. The Clerk 
of the Parliaments is appointed by the Crown under letters patent 
and he appoints the clerks of the departments under his control. The 
Clerk Assistant and the Reading Clerk are appointed by the Lord 

CLERK OP THE HOUSE OP COMMONS.— His duty towards the H<3nse 
of Commons is analogous to the duties which devolve on the Clerk of the 
Parliaments. He sits with the two Clerks Assistant at the table of the 
House. He reads alond all such documentii as are by custom or order read 
to the House ; he performs the duty ^from his place at the table) of presi- 
dent or moderator during the choice of a Speaker, putting, if a difl'erence 
occurs thereon, the questions consequent on that occasion, and directing, 
it necessary, the House to divide upon the question. The Clerk of the 
House is appointed by the Crown by letters patent, and the Clerks Assis- 
tant by royal warrant. 


hu been proposed, a Member may rise and claim *'Tbat tbe qaestion 
be now pot.'* and unless that motion appears to the Speaker, the Deputy- 
sp«aker, or the Chairman of Ways and Means to be an abuse of the Rules 
of the House, or an inflrinfement of the rights of the minority, the 
qaestion, "That the question be now put," is put forthwith, and decided 
without Amendment or Debate. The SUnding Order also enacts that, 
alter the Closnae has been carried, consequent motions, clauses, and 
pirts of clauses may be similarly proposed atid carried. It is necessary 
that the majority in support of the motion should consist of not less than 
lou I 

oourts of law, the Houkes of Parliament can punish all contempts of their 
authority, or repress any aggression committed upon their rights or privi- 
Irges; but in the case of the Commons the operation of this power is limited 
tn the session of Parliament, committals by that House being annulled 
by a prorogati«>n. Persons committed tn prison for contempt cannot be 
liberated on bail. 

COMMITTEES.— A Committee of the whole House is the HouHe itsvlf 
presided over by a Chairman instead of by the Speaker. The function of 
kttch a Committee is deliberation and not inquiry; they are appointed to 
otusider resolutions ibr the grant or the levy of public money, such as the 
Committees of Supply and Ways and Means, or resolutions as aprepara- 
liuD for legislation, and also to consider the details of a bill. The 
Speaker leaves the Chnir furihwith upon a Committee of the whole House . 
Mve in the case of the Committee of Supply, &c. When the House of 
Commons is in Committee, the Speaker vacates the Chair, the Mace is 
placed under the table, and the Chairman of Ways and Means, or in his 
4bieare a temporary chairman, is called on to preside. (8ee Chairman of 
Citmmitteea and of Ways and Means.) 

Under the Standing Orders two Standing Committees may be nppointed 
for the coDsideratian of such hills relating to law and Courts ol Justice and 
legal procedure, and to trade, shipping, manufactures, agriculture, and 
i>hing,as nay be committed to them ; the procedure in such committees is 
the same as in a Select Committee, a nd strangerx are admitted, except when 
the Committee shall order them to withdraw. These Committees cannot 
•it while the House is sitting without the order of the House. Notices of 
aiaendment to ciausea in bills committed to a Standing Committee, given in 
the Hoose* stand referred to such Committee ; 20 are the quorum of the 
Standing Oommittees. They consist of not less than 60 or more than " 


Members, nominated by the Committee of Selection, who shall have regard 
tu the classes of hills committed to such Committees, to the composition of 
the Ilonse, and to (he qualifications of the Members selected. The Com- 
mittee of Selection nominate a chairman's panel, of not less than four nor 
more than six Members.three being a quorum, and the chairman is appointed 
from the panel. In 188U the House of Lords also agreed to a Standing; 
Order for appointing one or more Standing Committees each Session, and 
thereunder appoint such Committees for ** Bills Relating to Law,"&c., 
and for "General Bills" respectively. 

Select Committees also are chosen to inquire into and to report to the 
House the matters referred to them ; aLso to consider the clauses of bills. 
These Committees seldom exceed 20 Members ; and there are also Com- 
mittees on private bills. Select Committees are generally empowered by 
(he House to send for papers and to summon witnesses. By an Act passed 
in 1871, the House of Commons or any Committee thereof is enabled to 
administer oaths to w itnesses ; and any person wilfully giving false evidence 
is liable to the penalties of perjury. See Privileges of Parliament. 

COMMONS, HOUSE OF.— See House of Commons. 

CONDUCT OF MEMBERS.— Whenever a Member shaU have been 
named by the Speaker or by the Chairman as disregarding the authority of 
the Chair} such Member shall be suspended t^m the service of the House. 
If any member who has been suspended shall refuse to obey the direction 
of the SpealiLer, the Speaker shall call attention to the fact that force is 
nece.<sary in order to compel obedience, the member who has refused to 
obey shall thereupon be suspended during the remainder of the session. 
Suspension does not exonerate the Member from serving on committees to 
which he had previously been nominated. Similar disregard of order in 
Committee of the whole House is reported to and dealt with by the House. 
The Speaker, or the Chairman, orders Members whose conduct 
is grossly disorderly to withdraw immediately from the House during 
the remainder of that day's sitting; and the SeijeMit-ftt-Arms 
actH on such orders as he may receive from the Chair, In pursuance of 
this resolution. If, however, the Speaker or the Chairman deems 
that his powers under the Standing Order are inadequate, he may 
name such Member or Members, or he may call upon the House to 
adjudge upon the conduct of such Member or Members. 

Members who are ordered to withdraw under this Standing Order, 
or who are suspended under Standing Order, must forthwith withdraw 
from the precincts of the House, subject, however in the case of 


suspended Members, to the provision regrarding their service on Private 
Bill Committees. 

Irrelevance or Repetition.— The Speaker or the Chairman, after 
having called the attention of the House or of the Committee to the 
conduct of a Member who persists in irrelevance or tedious repetition 
either of his own arguments or of the arguments used by other Mem- 
bers in debate, may direct him to discontinue his speech. See also 
Kaming a Member. 

CONFERENCE.— This is a method of negotiation between (het\ro Houses 
nf Parliament, conducted by manigerit appointed on both sides, for the 
purpose of prodacing concnrrence, in c«.«es where mntunl cnniient is neces- 
sary ; or for the purpose of reconciling differences which may have arisen. 
irth(>'conference be apon the subject of a bill depending between the tuo 
Houses, it must be demanded by that House which, at the time of askinc 
'he conference, is in possessiou of the bill. It is the privilege of the 
Lnrda to name the time and place for holding a conference, no matter by 
wtiich House it may have been demanded. Reasons in writing for t he 
coarse resolved to be taken are furnished to the managers on both sides, 
or a free conference can be held, when the managers attempt by discussion 
to effect an agreement between the two Houses. In May, IS&l, it was 
agreed both by Lords and Commons that reasons respecting diDer- 
rnces of opinion on any bill, or other proceeding, might be communicated 
to either Honse by message Arom the other, and this method has in effect 
superseded procedure by conference. See also Bills, Public. 

CONSOLIDATED FUND, THE, is the fund established by Act 27, 
Geo. III., cap. 13, formed of the proceeds of taxation, and otiier sums 
received by the Treasury in behalf of the Crown, in order that a fund may 
be provided "into which shall flow eveiy stream ol the public revenue, 
and from whence shall issue the supply for every public service." 


C0UNT8-OUT (in the Honse of Commons).— The Speaker, if necess»ry, 
cv>antsthe House when he takes the Chair, and after four o'clock, if forty 
Mrmbers are not present or do not assemble in two minutes, as indicntcd 
by the sand-glass upon the table, the House stands adjourned to ihf 
neit day of meeting. This also takes place during a silting, on the 
demand of a Member that the House be counted. At an evening »itting, 
ti>e Honae shall not be counted before 10 o'clock, but if on a division being 
taken on any business, and 40 members are not present, the business shall 


BtMiid over antil the next rittiiiR, and the next bosiness shall be taken 
Such an Hdjournntenl is called a " Count-out." 

CROWN.— The prerogatives and functions ofthe Crown may be sammed 
up under the following heads:— To give or reftase to bills the "Rojal 
Asaent" (which see); to cause the due administration and execntion of 
the laws ; to acton behalf of the whole community in its interoonrse with 
Foreign States, and as a part of that, to declare war or conclude peace; to 
direct the naval and military force of the country ; to administer the public 
revenue ; to prorogue or dissf^ve Parliament ; to create peers; and to coia 
money. The monarch is the supreme governor of the Church ; the source ot 
justice and of mercy, of all offices, honours, emoluments, and chartered 
rights. But in every case the sovereign acts by ministers who are amenable 
to Parliament, and the choice of those ministers is the only prerogative 
which can be constitutionally exercised without responsible advisers; bat 
even over this, thwe is much Parliamentary control, for the royal favoor 
can hnve no practical eftect, unless it rest upon men whose characters and 
meii.surf4 prove generally acceptable to both Houses. (See Cabinet.) 

DEBATE, RULES OF. — A Member desiring to speak rises in his place 
uncovered, and addresses himself to Mr. Speaker ; but no Member may 
speak twice to a question, except in explanation or reply, which is allowed 
to a Member who has made a substantive motion to the House. A Member 
may not read his speech, but he may refresh his memory by reference to 
notP8. A Member who rises to speak mustdirecthis speech to the question 
before the House, or to a motion or amendment which he intends to move, 
or to a question of order. When an amendment has been moved which 
seeks to substitute for a motion words more or less at variance thereto, 
debate is not restricted to the amendment, but includes the motive of the 
amendment and of the motion, both matters being under the consideration 
of the House, as alternative propositions ; but if the amendment be to add 
words only, debate is restricted to the desirability of the addition of tho»e 
words. No Member may speak to any question after the same has been 
fully put by Mr. Speaker ; and a question is fully put when the Speaker 
has collected the voices, both of the Ayes and of the Noes. When two 
or more Members rise to speak, Mr. Speaker calls upon the Member who, 
on rising in his place, is first observed by Mr. Speaker ; but if the Speaker's 
call be questioned, the House can determine which Member shall be heard. 
A new Member, who has not yet spoken, is generally called upon, by 
courtesy, in preference to other Members rising at the same time. A 
Member who has moved the adjournment of a debate is, if he claima the 
nrivilege, allowed precedence in addressing the House when the debate is 


resumed, or he may subsequently join in the debate. By the indulgence 
of the house, a M«mbf r may make a personal explanation, although there 
be no question before the House ; but no debatable matter may be brought 
forward, or debate arise upon the explanation. See Closure, &c. 

DISSOLUTION.— See Sittings of Parliament. 

DIVISIONS, MODE OF TAKING.— After the Question has been put 
by the Speaker, or Chairman, and his statement as to the preponderance of 
the "Ayes," or "Noes," as the case may be, has been challenged, 
the division bells are set in motion, and two minutes are allowed to 
elapse for the assembling of absent Members. The doors are then 
locked, and the Question is again put. If the statement from the Chair is 
again challenj^ed, the Speaker, or Chairman, directs the "Ayes" to go 
into the Right Lobby and the "Noes " into the Left Lobby, and appoints 
two Tellers for each. As the Members pass through the Lobbies, the 
Division Clerks take their names, and their number Is counted by the 
Tellers. The result being reported by the Tellers to the Speaker, or 
Chairman, he declares the number to the House. (See also Speaker of 

the HOUlte of Commons.) rr,rrr r^ xx rrr^m r 

man may,after the lapse of two minutes as indicated by the sand-glass, 
if in his opinion the Division is frivolously or vexatiously claimed, take 
the Vote of the House or Committee by calling upon the Members who 
support and who challenge his decision successively to rise in their 
places, and he shall thereupon, as he thinks Ht, either declare the deter- 
mination of the House or Committee, or name tellers for a Division. 

EXECUTiyE.— Thetollowingoomprise the principal departments of the 
execotive government:— The Treasury and Exchequer, the AdmlrNlty, 
the War Office, the Home Office, the India Office, the Colonial Office, 
the Board i»f Trade, the Foreign Office, the Board of Works, the Office 
of the Privy Seal, the Office of the Duchy of Lancaster, Secretaiy for 
Scotland, the Office of Chief Secretflry for Ireland, the Local Govern- 
ment Board, the Post Office, the Privy Council Office, the Board 
of Edocatinn and the Board of Agriculture. The public function- 
aries to whom the conduct in chief of these several departments is 
eatrasted, together with the great officers of the royal household, 
ooastitnte what is termed the Ministry or Administration. Its members 
vary according to circumstances, rarely exceeding fifty or sixty persons. 
The Administration usually resign when they lose the ct>nftdence of either 
House of Parliament; or they may be dismissed by the Sovereign » and if 


is competent for either Hoase to present an address to the throne, praying 
their dismissal. The members of a government are understood to onncnr 
in principles of legislation and policy, and co-operate in Parliament upon 
all matters not specifically agreed on as open qaestions. Their chief 
is generally the First Lord of the Treasury. When a Commoner, he 
sometimes combines with that office the Chancellorship of the Excheqatr, 
or another office, as that of Lord Privy Seal. The offices which are prinri- 
pally or exclusively occupied with the collection of the public revenue 
are the Cnstoms, the Excise, the Stamps, the Post Office, the Office nf 
Assessed Taxes, the Crown Landb, &c. 

HOUSE OP LORDS.— The Strangers' gallery, as in the Commons, is not 
opened till after prayers. Their Lordships frequently sit during the da; 
as a Court of Appeal, but do not usually assemble in their legislatire 
capacity until a quarter-past four in the afternoon, and on Tuesdays, the 
day appointed for the Standing Committees, at half-past five. On the 
opening or closing of the session, the meeting of the House generally 
takes place at two oVIouk. When the royal assent is to be given to bills 
by commission, the time of meeting is fixed to snit the occasion. A C<»m 
mission for giving the Royal Assent in itself constitutes a House. lu ISSl*. 
the Lords by Standing Order provided that if on a division in any stage i>t 
a bill in the House or in Committee thirty lords are not present, the ques- 
tion is not drcided, and the debate is adjourned to the next meeting. It is 
contrary to the Commons'privileges that the Honseof Lords should initiate 
or amend bills dealing with public expenditure or revenue, and bills ur 
amendments of such a nature are therefore laid aside or disagreed to by lUc 
Commons ; but the House of Lords can reject a money bill, as in thecase 
of the Paper Duties Bill of I860. 

The jurisdiction of the House of Lords as a court of Ultimate Appeal « a: 
constituted nnderan Act psssed in 1876, which came into operation in M ir. 
of that year. The Lords of Appeal consist of the L«)rd Chancellor (prt- . 
siding) and four Lords of Appeal in ordinary, three constituting a quorum, 
and may also include such peers of Parliament as hold or have held hii,h 
judicial office ; there is nothing in the Act to prevent lay peers also atteiut 
ing. The Lords of Appeal in ordinary receive each a life Peerage as a 
Baron, conferring a in the Honse of Lords. 

HOUSE OF COMMONS.— The House used to sit in St. Stephen's Chaprl. 
the chapel of the Royal Palace of Westminster, until the year 1834, when 
that building was destroyed by ftre. St. Stephen's Hall noir occupies the site 
of the former House of Commona; the basementstory of St. Stephen's Chapel, 
namely , the sub chapel, still exists. The present House of Commons is at 


the north end of the FHace; technically speaking, the House does not 
iBclade the gxlleries at each end of the chamber, or the space below 
the Bar. It was first ased 30th May, 1850. Above the Speaker's chair 
is a gallery for the Reporters. The galleries opposite are reurved for 
prers, Ibreign ministers, special visitors, and strangers, to whom the 
largri portion of the gallery is assigned, and who obtain access by orders 
obtained from the Speaker's secretary. Disttngntshed foreigners and other 
Tuitors are also seated below the Bar. Ladies are excluded from the 
House uf Commons, bnt there is a gallery Hbove that of the Keftorters 
rr»n which, concealed by a grating in front, they are allowed an imper* 
lectTiewof the House. The Ladies' Gallery is now approached by a 
'* liit." The galleries are opened as soon as the Speaker Ukes the chair . 

Formerly the House met at 8, 9, and 10 o'clock in the mr.ming. During 
the century previcui to 1888 the time of meeting was a quarter before 4 o'clock, 
when the Speaker took his seat at the table, and the Chaplain read prayers. 
In 1888 the time of meeting was changed to 3 o'clock, except on Wednesdnys 
and Saturdays. In 19U2 the time was changed to 2 o'clock for an aReruoon 
sitting, except on Fridays. The Strangers' and Reporters' galleries are then 
opened, and as forty generally attend, busineu begins. If, before he takes the 
Chair, thfl speaker feels Imund to ascertain the number present, he counts, 
and if lorty members do not appear at 4 o'clock, the House is adjourned to 
(he next day at the customary hour. At 7.30 the afternoon sitting is feos- 
pendcd antil 00, when the evening sitting commences with adjourned 
prit-ate tMsineas (if any) and Government business. On Fridays the House 
meets at noon and sits till6, if theordersofthe day are not sooner disposed of. 
On other days there was until lately no lime fixed for rising, but in 1888, by 
Standing Order, after 12 o'clock no opposed business can be taken, and the 
siting Is closed at 1 oVlock. (SeeSittings of the House.) The longest sitting 
00 record of the House of Commons in modern times occurred during the 
Debate on the Protection of Person and Property (Ireland) Bill, when the 
debate was prolonged fur 41 hours, viz. from 4 o'clock in the afternoon of the 
31st Jan., 1881, till 9 o'clock in the morning of the 2nd Feb. The House 
does not usually sit on Saturday : when it does, it meets at noon, and seldom 
itts late into the evening of that day. At the opening of each session the 
time of meeting is 2 o'clock, when the spee.'h from the Throne is delivered, 
and the two houjies reassemble for business at 4 o'clock. See also Business, 
Order of,&c., in Parliament.

MOTIONS. — Every proceeding in Parliament is based on a motion made 
by a Member (and seconded, if required), whereon the question is 
put from the Chair, which is decided by the House in the afflrmatiTe or th« 
negative. A substantive motion, i.e. a motion not consequent on the pro- 
ceeding before the House, such as motions calling upon the House 
to muke an order, or to agree to a resolution, must be made upon a 
notice printed on the notice paper for the sitting when the motion 
is made, and these motions, as a rule, muKt be moved by the Member in 
whose name the motion stands. Many motions made in the House are 
formal motions that arise from the proceeding in which the Houf^e is 
engaged, such as motions for adjournment, and on a report from a Com- 
mittee, &c. Previous notice of these motions of necessity cannot be given. 

Motions, save motions consequent on an order of the day., or made in 
Committee, require a seconder, although in practice the Speaker does not 
call upon a sec->nder of a motion, unless the propriety of tlie cull be 
obvious. See also Ballot for Notices of Motion. 

MOTIONS FOR LEAVB, &c.— See Bills. Motions for. 

NAMING A MEMBER.— If a Member is guilty of persistent disorder, 
the Speaker calls the particular attention of the House to him and to his 
conduct by calling upon the Member by his name, and thereby shows that 
such Member has incurred the displeasure and censure of the House. How 


that displeasure may take effect was in former times a matter of some 
ancertaintjr, and hence arose that standing parliamentary jest that a 
Speaker once confessed," Heaven knows what would be the result if he 
aamed a Member." Tbatuncertainty is, however, to a considerable extent 
rrmoved, for when the Speaker has named a Member, a motion mnst be 
nade forthwith that the Member be suspended from the service of the 
House. See also Conduct of Members. 

appointed by Royal Proclamation for the return of the writs, after a 
General Election, the Members meet in each House. In the House of Lords 
the Commissioners representing the Sovereign sit, and before these 
Commissioners the Commons are summoned, as upon the commencement 
of an ordinary session. Both Houses are then informed by the Lord 
Chancellor, one of the five Lords Commissioners, that as soon as the 
Members have been sworn, the Sovereign will declare the cause of 
their being called together; and the Commons are then directed to 
proceed to their chamber forthwith, and there elect a Speaker who is 
to be presented next day for the Sovereign's approval. New Peers having 
been introduced in the Lordf, that House adjourns to the next day. Mean- 
while, the Commons proceed in their own House to elect their Speaker. 
The process uf election is, briefly, as follows. The Clerk of the House 
rises in his place at the table and points to a Member (previously prepared 
as to the course that is to be taken), and without having spoken a word 
he fthe Clerk) sits down again. The Member indicated then rises and, 
addressing the Clerk, proposes that some other Member (who also has 
been previously prepared for the motion), "do take the Chair of this House 
as Speaker." The motion is seconded by another Member, usually one 
who ha« been Leader of the House of Commons, or has held a similar post 
of importance. On the motion being carried, and the Member proposed 
to be elected expressing his willingness to accept the office, the new 
Speaker is conducted to the Chair, from which he addresses the House in 
a speech of thanks, Ac. If another Memoer is proposed for the office, the 
claims of each nominee are discussed in a debate, and decided upon, if 
nreessary, by a division. The Mace, which had been placed below the 
table, is now laid thereon, where thereafter it always appears during the 
littings of the House with Mr. Speaker in the Chair. 

Next day the Speaker himself, at the head of the Commons, presents him* 
i(lf tothe Royal Commissioners attending in the House of Lords to receive 
him, and the Sovereign's approval of the election of the Speaker is accorded . 
Mr. Speaker afterwards making one of the speeches which give him his 
oame, and therein claiming, as he says, for himself, and on behalf of the 


Commonii, "all their ancient and undoubted rights and privileges." The 
Sovereign has in former times appeared in person in these proceedings 
(and on one occasion, in the year 1678, the "gracious approval" of the 
elected Speaker was withheld), bat of late years the Commissioners re- 
present the King, or Queen, who usually does not appear upon tlie scene 
until two or three days later, the day namely appointed for the formal open- 
ing of Parliament and the delivery of the King's, or Queen's, *' Speech."

ORDERS OF THE DAT.— These are the stages of bills and other matters 
already ordered to be taken into consideration, and so forming part of the 
appointed business of each day's sitting. Orders of the Day may be 
superseded by an amendment snbstitating for it a resolotion of the 
House; or beoume " dropped " when, if the order of the day is read, no 
action be taken thereon. Sach orders as are not reached, owing to a prior 
adjournment of the Huu»e, are put down for the next sitting. For*' Passing 
to (he Orders of the Day," see Previous Question. 

ORIGIN OF BILLS. -Generally speaking, with the Crown originate 
bills ofamnesty {—with the House of Lords all bills relating to a restitutiOD in 
blood and to restitution of honours;— with the House of Commons all bills 
relating to the public income and expenditure, which must receive tlie 
previon.s recommendation of the Crown. BillsafTecting tberoja] prerogative 
require the consent of the Crown. It is considered discourteous for one House 
to take the initiative in any measure aflecttng the privileges ol the other. 
It has always been held that in the Lords should originate bills of ** pains and 
penalties^'* or other measures founded upon oral testimony, mainly because 
until a comparatively recent date (1871) the Commons had not the power 
possessed by the Lords of examining witnesses upon oath. 

PALACE OF WESTMINSTER, THE.-See House of Coramoas, &c. 

PARLIAMENT.— The Commons are not the Parliament, neither ar« tlje 
Lords nor the Crown ; but the Sovereign and three <* Estates " ol the realm, 
the lords spiritual, the lords temporal, and the commons, united, constitute 
the High Court of Parliament, and exercise the legislative Amotions of the 
realm ; though it is usual to speak of the King, Lords, and Commons as 


the -three branches of the Legislatore." A peer is as much a mem- 
ber of Parliament at a commoner, while the Crown is a whole estate of 
ParlUment centred in the person of an individual. Thetwo Mouses convened 
by royal authority, and acUng jointly with the Crown, constitute the Legis- 
Uture or Rsrlianient » and its acU are called IndlfTerently «« Statutes** or «« Acts 
of Parliament;'* they hare the full force and efftet of law. (See «« Bills/') 
Parliament fully assembled consists of the Kinff, with the two estates 
of the peerage, sitting in one House, and the Commonalty by their repre- 
lentatiFCs standing below the bar. Neither of the Houses ever delibe. 
raU$ in the presence of the Sovereign, nor will either of them permit any 
allusion in debate to his sentiments. The King, Lords, and Commons, 
in their onitedcharact««r,exercisenonebutthelegislativefunctions. Taken 
together they are the Parliament, and there can be no Act of Parliament 
in which they do not concur. (See Royal Assent.) The power of Parlia- 
ment is held to be tranxendent, and subject to no limitation whatever. An 
Actof Parliament binds every subject, and even the Sovereign, when speciaUy 
named therein ; and no aothority less than that of Parliament can dispense 
with or abrogate a statute. In addition to this legislative character, 
common to the three, each has separate functions peculiar to itself. In 
•he Sovereign resides the whole executive authority. The House of Lords 
exercises judicial authority as a court of Ultimate Appeal, and as a tribunal 
to which great oiBners of State, impeached by the other House, are 
amenable. (See also House of Lords, and House of Commons.) 

PEERS OP PARLIAMKNT.-The Peerage of Great Britain and Ireland 
may be described as conaisting of, Ut, the Peers of England ; 2ndly, those 
of Scj>tland ; 3rdly, thoj-e of Ireland ; 4(hly, those of Great Britain ; and, 
Sthly, those of the United Kingdom ; according to their patents of 
creation. In the House of Lords, all Peers of England have seats and 
votes » have all of Great Britain, and of the United Kingdom. It fre- 
quently happens that Peers of England, Great Britain, or the United 
Kingdom, hold an equal or superior rank in the peerage of Scotland or that of 
Ireland; in which case, though popularly known by the higher dignity, they 
Kill have seats and votes in the Hou.e as of the inferior ranlt. It sometimes 
lappens also that the eldest son of a peer has a seat in the House during the 
lifetime of his fathei. The Rirl of Lovelace so sat as Baron Wentworth (by 
courtesy Viscount Ockham), he having succeeded to the barony through 
fcs mother. On the death of the Ist Earl of Lovelace (1893), Lord 
Wentworth became 2nd Earl, and his title. Baron Wentworth, became 
•erged in the higher dignity. The peers of ScoUand and Ireland have 
I place m the House only by their representatives, of which Ireland sends 
a, who are elected for life, and Scotland 16, chosen for each new Parlla- 



ment. By the Act of Union, no Iriah Peer enjoying a British dignity can be 
elected a RepretentaUve Peer. But the caw of an Irish Representative ob- 
taining an English Peerage after his election was not adverted to t thme hxve 
consequently been Irish representatives sitting by their Irish dignities, 
thou^ holding also English baronies. With a view to diminishing the 
number of non-representative Irish peers, but few new creations have been 
made during late years. The latest creations are the Dnkedom of Abercorn 
and the Ban>nyof Rathdonnel (1868), and the Barony nf Kedleston (1898). 
Irish Peers, not representative, may sit in the House of Commons k^r 
other than Irinh constituencies, but Scotch Peers may not. In adiUtion 
to the hereditary Peers of Parliament, the four Judges nf Appeal have 
the dignity of Barons for life, and nre summoned to Parliament as aach 
during their tenure of office. The two Archbishops, the Bishopa ot 
London, Durham, and Winchester, and SI of the remaining Bishops of 
England and Wwles, have seats in the House of Lords, not as Peers, 
but as Lords Spiritual of Parliament. The five flrat-mentioned prelates 
have their seats on appointment ; the others take seats by seniority 
of consecration, the junior Bishops being for the time excluded. The 
Bishop ofSodor and Man has no seat in Parliament. 

PRTITION8.— Tlieite musit proceed firoin British sutijects or foreigners 
resident in this country. When intended for the House of Lords, a petition 
must be addressed, "To the Right Honourable the Lords Spiritual and 
Temporal in Parliament assembled;" when addressed to the House or 
Commons, it nuy be directed, ** To the Honourable the Knights, Citiaens, 
and Burgesses of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland in 
Parliament assembled i" but more usually in thif form, **To the Honour- 
able the Commons of the United Kingdom in Parliament assemlWed.** 
Its commencement must describe the petitioners thus: " The humble- 
petition of the electors of the parish of showeth that," dec. or. ira 

the case of an individual, his name and occupation must be state*.^ 
thus: **The humble petition of John Brown, carpenter, showeth that,** dec 
The statement of grievance must then follow} and the whole musr 
conclude with a specific prayer. The omission of a prayer ia fhtal to i 
the reception of a petition, for no mete remonstrance or detail of griew- - 
ances will be received. The prayer should be thus introduced : ** Whemu. 
fore your petitioners humbly pray that your Honourable House will t»« 
pleased to," dec, the particular relief expected being here stated.. To t>»« 
whole petition must be added the words, ** And your petltionera as ».«3 
duty bound will ever pray, &c. ;» immediately thereupon mustfoUow the sis^. 
natures ; of which one at least must be on the same sheet of paper, or skin oi 
parchment, aa the petition— not pasted or otherwise appended. The signature^ a 


or marks must be original— not copies nor signatures of agents on behalf o 
ofheni, except in the case of illness ; thus no chairman of a public meeting 
can sigti for the whole meeting; in the caf«e of snch an informality the 
petition is received only as that of the individnal signing. But the 
common seal of a Corporation Is received as the petition of the whole 
rorporate body, and the Corporations of London and Dublin have tlie right 
to petition without the intervention of a member. The address of each 
petitioner must be affixed to his signature. A printed, lithographed, or 
type- written petition will not be received ; it must l>e in writing on parch 
ment or on paper, free from erasures or interlineations, and composed 
in English, or accompanied by a translation, which the inreaentinf mem- 
ber certifies to be correct ; but no letters, affidavits, or other documents, 
can be annexed. Petitions are rejected if not respectful and temperate 
in lanicuage, free tVom imputations upon the character and conduct of either 
House of Parliament, the Courts of Justice, or other constituted autho- 
rities. No reference is permitted to any debates, or to any motions supposed 
to be in preparation ; while petitions, praying for a grant of public money or 
for the remission of customs, stamps, or other duties (when payable by any 
person) can only be received on the recommendation of the Crown. The 
presenting memt>er is expected to affix his name to the heginntnfi of the 
ptrtition, as well as to examine whether all the necessary conditions have 
been complied with ; and, though no debHte is allowed on a petition, the 
Committee on Public Petitions subseqnently subject all those documents to a 
severe scrutiny. Petitions for presentation may be forwarded by post free of 
charge, to any member of either House, in parcels open at the ends, merited 
outside," Pariiamentary Petitions," and not exceeding 39 ounces in weight. 

PRESS GALLERY.— Galleries have Ijeen constructed and set apart for 
the use of the reporters for the press in the House of Lords since October 
\b, 1831, in the Hoase of Commons since February lU, 1885. See also 

PREVIOUS QUESTION, MOVING THE.— When a motion has been 
made upon which the House is unwilling to come to a decision, the motion 
can be withheld from the decision of the House by moving " tJie Previous 
ttoestion," or by an amendment to the motion proposing that " the House 
do now proceed to the Orders of the Day," or « do pass to the public busi- 
feess of tlie day." These amendments, which, if agreed to,set aside theoriginal 
■notion, can only be moved on privilege motions, which are brought for- 
«rard without notice before the public business is commenced. The form 
Bf the "Previous Question" in the House of Commons is "That that 
Question (i.e. the original motion) be not now put." If the "Previous 

I 2 



Question" be agreed to, the original motion cannot be put from the 
Chair, though it can be proposed on a subsequent occasion. In the Houi^e 
of Lords the form for the " Previous Question " is " whether the original 
question be now put," and those who support the "Previous Question ' 
vote against that motion. 

PRIVILBGE8 OP PARLL\MENT.— These are of three kindst 1st, the pri- 
vileges which appertain to members indiTlduaily ; 2nd* those which belong 
to either House in its collectire capacity ; 3rd, those of both Hoosee Joint] j. 
Prom well-known precedents it appears that the Lords and Commonr, 
actmg concurrently, can assume the supreme power whenever the throne 
is vacant, or the Sovereign incapable of exercising the royal fonrtions, si 
happened 'at the Revolution in 1688 { in 1788, when a regency was ofiercd 
to the Prince of Wales, though George IIL recovered so speedily that it 
became unnecessary t in 181£, when a restricted regency was appointed ; 
and, subsequently, when the restrictions were removed. The separate 
privileges of either House are extensive, but they are, at the same time, 
uncertain and ind<rfinite. Amongst them are the power of rommittiiig^ 
individuals to prison, the power nf publishing matters which, if not 
issuing firom such high authority, might become the subject of prixreed- 
ings in a court of law, the power of directing the Attomey.General to prosecute 
persons accused of offbnces against the laws, or afibcting the privilege of Par. 
liainent, and, finally, a power vested in each House respectively of doing an\ 
thing iu Hccordance with the law of Parliament— which may be neces- 
sary for the vindication or protection of itself in the exercise of its ou n 
cnnstitulionMl functions. In the daily proceedings of Parliament question^ 
of privilege take precedence of all other business. The privileges of tndlridua I 
Memberb of Parliament are freedom of speech and person. Including fircedom 
from legal arrest and imprisonment. Parhamentary privilege, however, 
does not extend to Indictable oflfences, to contempu of the courts of 
justice, or to cases nude felonies and misdemeanors by the laws o( 
bankinptcy. By bankruptcy, a Member's seat becomes vacant. Members 
of Parliament are exempt from obeying subpoenas, and serving on Juriea. 
" PrivOege of Fsriiament " continues to Peers at all times, and to Commonera 
for a ** convenient" time after prorogation and dissolution. 

Peers are entitled to be present at the coronation of the Sovereign, ana if 
Parliament be in session at the time, the Commons also attend, with tftseir 
clerks and officers. Peers cannot be outlawed in any civil action, nor can 
any attachment lie against their persons ) they are exempt from atteadknc 
courtsleet, or the posse^omitatus } when arraigned fisr any criminal ol1bnc«, 
it must l>e twfure their peers, who relorn a verdict, not npon oath, batBf>on 
honour ; they also have the privilege of sitting covered in courts of juaticc. 
la 1871 an act was passed by which Peers becoming bankrupt, or in 


Scatland having their estatm sequestrated, are disqualifted from sitting or 
voting until after the bankruptcy is annulled, or the debts discharged. 
See also Committals for Breach of Privilege. 

PROGRESS, REPORT OP.— A Committee of the whole House cannot 
^i^ourn its sittings, or any proceeding therein, to n further day. If the 
transactions with which a Committee is charged are not completed, in 
the Lords, when the House is resumed, the Chairman moves " That the 
House be again put into Committee" on a future day, and in the 
Commons, he reports " progress," and asks leave to sit again. 

The motion that the Chairman do report progress is also used in 
Committee in order to interrupt or to arrest the procedure therein, in 
the same way that motions for adjournment are moved in the House- 

PROROGATION,— See Sittings of ParlUment, InterrupUon of. 

QUESTION.- When a motion has been made and seconded, it merges 
in theqnestion which is proposed by the Speaker to the House. Tlierc 
upon debate arises, and amendments may be moved thereto. 

When a question has been proposed from the Chair, the question, sub 
ject to amendments, must be decided by the House in the affirmative or 
negative, or the question may be avoided by the proposal of the previous 
question, or it may; be withdrawn upon unanimous leave given by 
the House. When debate on a question is closed, the question 
must be put. The Speaker rises, states the question to the House, 
beginning with "The question is that," and takes the sense of the 
House thereon by desiring that "as many as are of that opinion say 
' Aye' or 'Noe»*' (in the Lords the form is " Content" or "Not Con- 
tent ") . The Speal:er in reply to the response made by the House says, 
"I think the Ayes (or the Noes) have it," and if that statement be not 
challenged, he finaUy declares, "So the Ayes (or the Noes) have it." If 
the Speaker's statement, "I think, Ac," be cliallenged, he directs the 
House to divide. (See also Debate and Divisions.) 

QUESTIONS TO MINISTERS. -Notices of que.»tion8 must be given 
by members in writing to tlie Clerk at the table, and are taken at a 
qoarter past two. No questions are taken after tive minutes before three 
eicept those whi<^h have not been answered in consequence of the 
ii'Meace of .the minister to whom they are addressed. Any member who 
desires an oral answer may distinguish it by an asterisk, but notice rnunt 
"P;>earun the notice paper of the day before that on which an answer is 
desired. If questions are not distinguished by an asterisk or the member 
h not present to ask it, or if it is not reached before live minutes to three 


the answer will b« printed with tbe votes, unless the member has 
signified his desire to postpone the qoestion. 

QUORUM.— See House of Lords and House of Commons. 

REJECTION OF A BILL.— The usual mode of moving the rejection 
of a measure is by moving an amendment to the question. That the bill 
be now read the second time, whereby, if agreed to, the House order 
that the bill be read a second time ou this day six mouths. See also 

REPORTERS fPARLIAMENTARY).-SeePre88Galleryand Strangers. 

RESOLUTION.— A Resolution of the House consists of an entry in the 
Journal which batons with the word " Resolved." This form is used when 
the House arrives at decisions regarding its future conduct, snch as art- 
embodied in the Standing Orders, or when the House gives expression tn 
its collective opinion, as in a resolution that the Ministry do not possess 
the confidence of the House, or when the House expresses an adverse opinion 
upon a bill by substituting for the motion that the bill be read a second 
time, a declaration that, for specified reasons, it is undesirable that the bill 
should become law. 

When the House determines that a return should be made to the House, 
or that a matter should be dealt with on a future day, the Journal entry 
begins with the word "Ordered That, &c." See also Orders of the Day. 

ROYAL ASSENT— The act by which the Crown agrees to a blU which has 
pasted both Houses is called** The Royal Assent,*' which may be given by the 
Sovereign in person robed, crowned,and seated on the throne in the House of 
Lords, or the royal assent may be given by commissioners appointed by the 
Crown for that special purpose and for the single occasion. The furmsobMerved 
in both cases do not vary, and are as follow:— The Lords being assembled in 
their own House, the Sovereign or the Commissioners seated, and the Commons 
nt the bar, the titles of the several bills which have passed both Mouses u« 
read, and the King or Queen's answer Is declared by the Clerk of the Ite*! la- 
ments in Norman French. To a bill of supply (which on being presented 
by the Spealcer has the precedence of other bills) the assent is given ta the 
following words i—*'i:.e roy (or, la reyne) remercte set bong tufett^ meetptt 
fntrbinivolenee et airuile 9euU,^* To public general bills it Is given In theaa 
terms:— **/<e roy for, la reyne) It vetiM.'* To a private bill it is thus de- 
clared :—**Sot( fait comme U est detiti.^* Should the Sovereign refuse 
assent, it Is In the gentle language of **£« roy (or, la reyne/ s^aviMera,** As 
acts of grace and amnesty originate with the Crown, the clerk expressing the 


fjutitiide of the subject addresMt the throne as follows.— **!>« prtlan.

tout tnitret t^fets retturclent Iris hunMetnent vottre majealit et priettt A 
Dieu Mm« donmr *n santi bonne uie et Umgue." The moment the royal asMnt 
ban been given, that which was a bill becomes an Act, and tnitanUjf has the 
force and effect of law, unless some time for the commencement of its opera- 
tioB should have been specially appointed. 

RULES OP PROCEDURE.— See Ba»neMi, Debate, Motions, Standing 
Orders, &c. 

SERJEANT AT ARMS.— There are two officers bearing this titlr, 
appointed bj the Crown to attend the Houses of Fvllsment, and each has a 
dsputjr. In the House of Lords, the maintenance of decorum below the bar, 
iioar the throne, and in the gallery, devolves upon the (tentleman and ye«inun 
nsher of the BiNck Rod, with their as^i»tant^ so that ** the Serjeant at Arms 
attending the House of Lords" haa less conspicuous duties to perfbrm than 
tbosa which devolve upon** the Serjeant at I ending the House of Commoni>)" 
both, however, execute the commands of the House to whtch they belong, as 
regards the apprehension or custody of all persons committed by order of 
Psrliament. In the House of Commons, the Sorfeant at Arms is an officer 
of considerable importance, assisted by a deputy and several subordinate 
ofRcers; during the sittings of the House he occupies a chair close to 
the bar, and he diiects a large proportion of the arrangements connected 
with the maintenance of order in the approaches to the House and the 
oflices adjacent. He is at once the executlvo and th« ceremonial officer 
of the lower House. He discharges the duties appertaining to his office 
>nd givea efiect to the directions of the House, communicated through the 
Speaker. The office is usually held by a gentleman of the military profesiion 

SESSION.—The term session, applied to the sittings of any public assembly, 
vould be generally understood to signify the period during which they >at 
without any intermission or recess { but in Iteliamentary language it has u 
more extensive stgniflcation. Unless Parliament be prorogued, the session 
is not closed. The House of Commons takes care to limit to one year the 
duration of certain Acts of Parliament, such as the Army (annual) or 
Motiny Act, and ceruin statutes authorising the levy of taxes, &c., without 
viiich the Government of the country could not be carried on ; and the 
Crown, therefore, is compelled to resort to an annual assemblage of Parlia- 
■neat, which usually takes piece in the beginning of February, though special 
ciicunutancee may sometimes lead to the appointment of an earlier period. 
Six days at lease, butgenerally thirty or fbrty days previous to the intended 
ncetiag, a pmclamation Is bsued by the Crown, commandfaag the attendanr 


of the Lords and Common i, nmully at Westminster; Init It may be at any 
place within the United Kingdom. The Houses being assembled, the 
So?erelgn meets them in the House of Lords, either in person, or by 
Lords Commissioners, and decliires the cansesoi the nommons by a Speech, 
prepared beforehand by the Cabinet. Thas does a seMsion cnmmencr. 

The circumstance of either or both Houses adjourning their sittings, 
whether vith or without the recommendation of the Crown, does not ter- 
minate the tesaion. To effect that, there must he the prorogation of 
Parliament, under a royal commission, or by the Sorereign in person. 
The progress which a measure makes in one session does not influence 
itfl position in the next, or in any others for if not completed previous 
to prorogation, it in any following session be commeuoed 
de novo; though private bills are occasionally bU»p«nded from one 
Hcsaion to anotlirr. The business usually transacted on the first day of 
every session is to take into consideration the speech nrom the throne ; Imt 
for "form's sake," a bill always receives a first reading, in order, it Is 
said, to show that Fariiament is not obliged to give precedence to the 
siibiects contained in the royal speech. In the year 1763, in 1817, and on 
various other occasions, the consideration of the King's speech haa been 
delayed by discussions on other subjects, but generally the practice ia to 
proceed with it at the afternoon sitting, namely, in about two or three hours 
after the speech has been delivered. 

The usual duration of the session is fi-om February to August ; but no num- 
ber or length of adjournments destroys tti continuity. In the year I6£l, the 
House of Commons adjoivned its sittings For five months; but yet it was held 
that the session had not terminated. Tl>e session of 18iJ8 ran into 1894, 
heint; the Innpent scj^sinn on record, except in the case of the Long Parlia- 
ment. In 1A49, it is recorded that Parliament sat through the Christmas 
holidays, Christmas Day alone excfpted. f See Sittings of Parliament, New 
Parliament, &c.) 

SIX MONTHS (THIS DAY).— See Rejection of a Bill. 

ceedinRS of Parliament may be intermpted or suspended either by ad- 
joornment, prorn(ration,or dissolution. Adjournment, as the term imports 
is a postponement ofthesit.tingorproceedingii of either Mouse of Parliament 
from .)ne time, to another Npecitied for the reassemblage of the Hoose, or 
the re^uinptiun of tiio business wliich was adjourned. Tlio interruption 
of a sitting of both Houses by royal authority is called prorogation. l)is- 
xolation puts an end to the representative character of the individaals 
who at the time compose the House of Commons, as well as to that of the 


Scottish RepreFentatire Peers, and Parliament cannot again assemble antil 
after a general election. 

The power of adornment is inherent in each Honse respectively, and 
no precise restraints apon this power are preacrilied by the constitation. 
Either Hoase may interrupt or postpone any debate, defer the consideration 
of any raeasnre, or adjourn its sittings. The Lords frequently adjoarn 
"daring pleasare," which means that the Lord Chancellor or other 
Speal(er of the House may, in the exercise of his discretion, take his 
ieat on the woolsack, two other Peers being present, and resume busi- 
ness at any hour within the day on which such Mdjonrnment "during 
pleasure" has taken place, otherwise their Lordships' House will 
stand adjourned to the usual hour of meeting on the following day. 
The Commons, on the contrary, always adjourn to a time specified, though 
tlie saspension of a sitting often takes place. The adjournment of 
one House is no adjournment of the other. The Crown may, during an 
adjournment or prorogation, summon both Houses by proclamation. The 
pleasure of the Crown may be signified that boih Houses should adjourn to 
a specified day ; this intimation is contrary to modern usage, and has not 
been exercised since 1814. Adjournment does not cAost the session ; proro. 
nation does not terminate the Parliament ; the former is an act of either 
House; the latter an act of the Crown, whereby the duration of a 
seasiun may be extended or curtailed, according to the royal pleasuret 
subject to Act of Parliament. 

All unfinished proceedings (except an impeachment, and an appeal 
to the House of Lords) are quashed by prorogation; but during an 
adjonrnment they remain m statu quo. Prorogation is effected at 
the dose of a session by royal oomraissitin, aud then by proclama- 
tion until it is intended that Parliament should assemble for the dis- 
patch of business. Prorogation has been resorted to in order to admit 
lh« reintroduction, otherwise not possible until the next session^ of a 
bill which has b«en rejected by the Lords ; thus in 1831 there whs a 
prorogation from Oct. 2U to Dec. ^, to allow of the reintroduciion of the 
Kefonn Bill. The Crown by proclamation may, notwithstanding a proroga- 
tion, summon Parliament on giving not less than six days' notice ; before 
the year 1 870 the period was fixed at fourteen days. In case of the embodi- 
ment of the Militia, Parliament must be summoned within ten days. 

Dissolution is the civil death of Parliament, and may be eflected by 
the pleasure of the Crown, or by of time. Parliament under 
<be Septennial Act ceases to exist after seven years from the day 
On nhich by the writ of summons it was appointed to meet. Until 
'he Reform Act of 1867 was passed, the law was that, however re- 
cently elected, a Parliament expire in six months at most i^rom the 



demise of (he Crown, Mbject tn disflolafion by the Sorerei};n in a 
less period than six months from the denth of his predcoesKor. 
Since that Act became law, however, the Parliament in being at any 
future demise of the Crown will continue as long as it would have 
otherwise continued, unless dissolved by the new Sovereign. If Parlia- 
ment at the time of the Sovereign's death be separated by a^joarnmetit 
ur prnrngwtion, it mast assemble immediately. If no Parliament bts then 
in existence, the members of the last must again meet and may serve lu a 
Parliament for six months, unless sooner prorogued ; and so much Innpor- 
tance appears to be attached to an instant assemblage, that upon the 
demise of the Crown even the intervention of Sunday has not been per- 
mitted to delay the meeting of both Houses. ^See also Session.) 

SITTINGS OP THE HOUSE.— Unless the House otherwise order, 
the House shall meet every Monday, Tuesday, "Wednesday, and Thurs- 
day at Two of the clock for an afternoon hitting, and at Nine of the 
cloclc for an evening sitting, and shall, unless previously adjourned, 
sit till One of the clock a.m., when the Speaker shall adjourn the 
House without Question put, unless a Bill originating in Committee 
of Ways and Means, or unless proceedings made in pursuance of any 
Act of Parliament, or Standing Order, or otherwise exempted, under 
the provisiuns contained in this Standing Order, be then under 

That at 7 30 and midnight on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and 
Thursdays, except as aforesaid, and at half-past Five of the clock on Fri- 
dayH, the proceedings on any business then under consideration shall be 
interrupted ; and the business then under consideration, and any busi- 
ness subsequently appointed, shall be appointed for the next day on 
which the House shall sit, unless the Speaker ascertains by the prepon- 
derance of voices that a majority of the House desires that such business 
should be deferred until a later day. 

That after the business under consideration at Twelve and half-pa^t 
Five respectively has been disposed of, no opposed business shall W 
taken ; and the Orders of the Day not disposed of at the cliwe of the 
sitting shall stand for the next day on which the House shall sit. 

That a Motion may be made by a Minister of the Crown at the com- 
mencement of Public Business, to be decided without Amendment or 
Debate, to the following effect : "That tlie proceedings on any specified 
business if under discussion nt Twelve this night be not interrupted 
under the Standing Order ' Sittings of the House.' " 



officer, who presides over the deliberations of the Houaej was anciently, 
■■ at preaeat, the oi^an or spokesman of the Commons, and delivers 
speeches on their belialf. Amongst the duties of the Spealcer are the fol. 
lowing: he reads to the Sovereign addresses from the Commons, and 
delireri, in the Royal presence, whether at the Palace or in the House 
of Lords, nich speeches as are usually made on behalf of the Commons. He 
praposes and puta each queation for the decision of tiie House, and, if 
uecessary, direcu the House to divide thereon, and appoints the tellers ; 
be callson the Members who rise to speak j he puts questions in the name of 
the House, when witnesses or prisoners are at the bar} reprimands persons 
who incur the displeasure of the House ; issues warrants fior new writs ft>r the 
election of a. If ember, and makes communications in writing, when so in- 
•tnictedby the House. 

He is the guardian of the rights and privileges of the House) and by hit 
counsel ascertains that private bills are drawn In conformity with the Law of 
Ptflianwnt. He expresses the thanks or approbation of the Commons to dis. 
tinguished personages ; entertains the Members at dinner in due successiun 
and at stated prriodsi and in the Chaplain's absence he reads prs} ers. He 
siijnurBS the House at four o'clock, if forty members be not present (see 
Httose of Common^)- 

He maintains order in the House, either by the authority of his position, or 
under the standing and other orders of the House. The Speaker names 
Members who persist in disorder (see Naming a Member). In extreme cases 
Uie Speaker may order Members or others Into custody until the pleasure Of 
the Houaa be sigDified. The Speaker must not enter into debstr, 
though be may speak in a Committee of the whole House. On divisions, 
when the numbers iiappen to be equal, he gives the casting voice, ntherw ise 
he only votes when out of the Chair, that is when the House is in Committee. 
When Parliament is prorogued by the Sovereign, it is customary for the 
Speaker to address to the I hrone from the bar of the House of Lords, 
> ipeech recapitulating the proceedings of the session. 

His Privileges, Appointment, and Rank.— He is chosen by the House of 
Commons from amongst its own members, subject to the approval of the 
Crown, and holds office till the dissolution of the Parliament in which 
>w was elected. His salary is 5000/. a.year, with a fnrnUhed residence. 
At the end of his official labours he ts rewarded by a peerage, and a 
pension of 40001. He is a member of the ("rivy Council and entttlod to 
rank after Barons. 

Until the year 18A8, business conid not be transacted in his absence, 
though to this rule there was an exception in the year 1606, a prisoner 
**«ing released by order of the House during the illness of a Speaker. In 
An;u9t, 1853, however, it was rexolved that during the unavoidable 


abKHce of (he Speaker, the Chairman of Committee of Ways and Means 
should preside in bis stead ; and the Speaker may during the sitting of the 
House, ask htm to take the Chair. (See also Closure of Debate, Conduct 
of Members, Sittings of the House, Chairman of Committee of Wayeand 
Means, New Parliament, &c.) 

SPB AKBR OF THE HOUSE OF LOilDS.~The Lord Chancdlor, or Lord 
Keeper of the great seal* is by prescription Speaker of the House of Lords. 
He is usually, but not necessarily, a peer. There has always been a Deputy 
Speaker* and formerly there were two or moret tiut from the year 
1851 there was only one, though in 1881, four Deputy Sp«-akers were 
appointed. The Chairman in Committees cenerallv fills this office (see 
Chairman of Committee). In the alwence of the Lord Chancellor and 
the Deputy Speakers* it is competent to the House to appomt any noble 
Lord to take the woolsack. The Speaker is the organ or mouthpiece of the 
House, and it is therefore his duty to represent tlielr Lordships in theii 
collective capacity when holding intercourse n ith other public bodies or with 
ndividoals. Unlike the Commons* Speaker, lie votes on divisions, but be 
has not a casting vote ; for should the numbers prove equal, the not contents 
are held to prevail. See also Lord High Chancellor and New Parliament. 


resolution agreed to by (h j Houjie for the guidance and <irder of their pro- 
ceedings, whidi the House has resolved to a Standing Order, and is 
operHtive until it is repealed. The Stnnding Orders regulate the sittings 
of the committees of the House, procedure on bills* the presentation of 
petitions* the creation of charges upon the public revenue, and other 
matters connected with the procedare of the House. 

Sessional orders agreed to at the commencement of each session are re- 
newed l^om year to year. These orders relate to Members returned upon 
doable returns* and declsre that peers must not interfere with elections to 
Pitrliament, and that the Hou.<>e will proceed with severity against persom 
guilry of electoral bribery. The Commi.<'sioners of the Police are also 
ordered to keep the streets leading to the house free and open. 

Many resolutions governing the procedure of the House made in past 
Parliaments are continually observed, and have by custom received ilie 
force and operative eflfectof a Standing Order. 

STRANGERS— It is contrary to the Standing Orders of both Houses thst 
any suangers should be present; and the publicmtion of debates U theoretically 
a breach of privilege. But secret deliberation by Parliament has been so 


long renounced) that the right of the public to be present through their 
agents* the Reporters, is as clearly established as if no theoretical 
privacj had ever existed. Occasions have arisen, however, though at Itmg 
interrals, when the House has thought proper to exclude strangers, as 
in 1870, when they were excluded during debates not thought desirable tu 
render public. Up to the year 1875 a single member who toolc 
notice of the presence of strangers could procure an order from the Chair 
for their ezciusion; but by resolution agreed to during the session of 1875, 
subsequently made a Standing Order, strangers are not to be excluded 
except by a motion carried wiihout amendment or debate, reserving to 
the Speaker or Chairman the power to order the withdrawal of strangers 
from any part oi the House. As ladies are not technically ** StrNngers," 
their preaance in their gallery is unaffected by the order of the House. 
See House of Commons.) 

SOPPLY (COMMITTEE OF)^All proceedings which relate to the publie 
income or expenditure must originate with the House of Commons, and are 
commenced by the demand of the Sovereign, in the Royal Speech, for 
« supply of money to maintain (he public service. The grant of Supply 
by the Commons is founded on the estimates of the annual expenditure 
presented by the Crown, and is made by resolutions which are sgreed to, 
first in Committee of Supply, and then by the House, and subsequently 
sanctioned by the Appropriation Act. (See p. 111.) After the House 
has first gone into Committee of Supply on the Army, Navy, and Civil 
Services, the Hoase resolves itself into Committee forthwith, in order 
that under the constitutional usage that grievances be heaid before (he 
grant of Supply general subjects are discussed on the question, " that 
the Speaker do leave the Chair." The payment of the grsnt of Supply 
is made by the Treasury when the issue is sanctioned by a royal order 
under the sign manual, and by the Consolidated Paud and the Appro- 
priation Acts which are passed during the progress and at the close of the 
session. See also Ways and Means. 

SUPPLY (BUSINESS OF).— "As soon as the Committee of Supply 
hssbeen appointed and Estimates have been presented, the bminess of 
Supply ihsll (until it be disposed of) he the first order of the day on 
Thursday, unless the House otherwiie order on the motion of a Minister of 
the Crown moved at the commencement of public business, lo be decided 
without amendment or 4ebate. 

Not more than twenty days, being days before the 5th of August, 
shall be allotted for the consideration of the Annual Estimates for the 


Army, Navy, and Civil Services, including Votes on Account. The days 
allotted shall not include any day on which question has to be put that 
the Speaktr do leave the chair, or any day on which the busineaa of Supply 
does not stand as first order. 

"Provided always, that the days occupied by the consideration of Esti- 
mates supplementary to those of a previous Session, or of any Vote of Credit, 
shall not be Included in the computation of the twenty days. 

" Provided also, that on motion made after notice, to be decided without 
amendment or debate, additional time, not exceeding^ three days, may be 
allotted for the busineasof Supply, either before or after the 5th of August. 

*' On a day so allotted, no business other than business of Supply 
shall be taken before midnight, and no business in Committee or 
proceedings on Report of Supply shall be Uken after midnight, 
unless the House otherwise order on the motion of a Minister of the 
Crown, moved at the commencement of public business, to be decided 
without amendment or debate. 

** Of the days so allotted, not more than one day in Committee shall be 
allotted to any Vote on Account, and not more than one sitting to the 
Report of that Vote. At midnight on the close of the day on which that 
Vote is taken, and at the close of the sitting on which the Report of that 
Vote is taken, the Chairman shall forthwith put every question necessary 
to dispose of the Vote or the Report. 

" At ten o'clock on the last but one of the allotted days, the Chairman 
shall proceed tn put forthwith every question necessary to dispose of the 
Vote then under consideration, and forthwith put the question that all 
Votes outstanding be granted ; and at ten o'clock on the last day the 
Speaker shall proceed to put forthwith every question necessary to com- 
plete the outstanding Reports of Supply. 

"On the days appointed for concluding the business of Supply, the 
consideration of that business shall not be anticipated by a motion of 
adjournment; nor may any dilatory motion be moved on such pro- 
ceedings for that business; nor shall they be interrupted under any 
Standing Order. 

" Kny additional estimate for any new service or matter not included in 
the original estimates, shall be submitted for consideration on some day 
not later than two days before the Committee is closed.** 

ceedings on the reports of the Committees of Supply and Ways and 
Means, nnd other committees authorizing the expendituie of public 


money, may be entered upon at any hour, though opposed, and shall 
not be interrupted under the provisions of any Standing Order regulating 
the sitiinge of the House.

(see Sapply) the eJiaual expenditure of the nation is provided for, the levy of 
taxation to meet the Sappiy is voted in the Committee of Ways and Meant. 
All loana, duties* taxest tolls, reTenae, and imposu must be tirst considered 
in a Committee of the whole House, whilst the imposition of taxation 
for the servioe of the year is reserved lor the Committee of Ways 
and Means. The propositions of Oovernment for the levy of taxation are 
voted In the form of separate resolutions, which, having been agreed to by 
the House, are embodied into bills,and in due course become law. As in 
the case of other money bills, the Lords may reject, tmt cannot modify th'sse 
bills ; nor can their Lordsfcips insert pecuniary penalties in any bill, unless 
it be a private bill. The Appropriation bill is founded upon the resolution 
whicn closes the proceedings of the Conunitte of Ways and Means. (See
